Sailing a Pure Solar Boat feels nothing short of Magic
Even when we know the amount of hours that went into its inception and construction, the feeling of sailing a 100% solar electric yacht is completely exhilarating!
Bali has been in lock down for multiple months and since then, there has been no leisure craft venturing out of the marinas or mooring areas. Besides this unique situation, since June, it is the windy season in Bali with steady Easterly winds at 20+ knots making for bumpy rides over the Indian Ocean. Top that up with massive swells (all too appreciated by surfers usually flocking the island for the chance of riding the famous surfs in the South) and strong current and you have a pretty deterring cocktail for those who'd consider venturing out at sea. We launched our first Aquanima 40 100% solar electric catamaran "Solar Eclipse" right in the midst of all that and, trusting our engineering, boat building and true sailor spirit, have been going out at sea with Eclipse numerous times.
Eclipse has proven great sea worthiness and the solar energy and electric propulsion systems are taking care of moving the boat and keeping her energized at any moment without the captain having to worry about anything, least of things: Refueling :)
